coming faster than we ever "
predicted. Orders for the 727-
200 have passed the 1,000 mark, and the
sale of ten 707’s to China represents a break
through which gained worldwide attention.
Boeing continues to pursue vigorously a
number of major aerospace programs, includ
ing a short takeoff and landing (STOL) air
craft, helicopters, the Airborne Warning and
Control System (AWACS), and space vehicles
and equipment, among others.
Boeing Computer Services, Inc., a wholly-
owned subsidiary, is becoming recognized as
a broad based company with services not only
in consulting, training, computer system de
sign, programming, and data processing, but
also in management, operations research, and
management of customer computer facilities.
While the major elements of our business
continue to be commercial jet transportation
and government defense and space require
ments, we have begun activities outside these
traditional areas. Measured on the scale of
total company operations, these diversifica
tion activities don’t loom very
large yet. But we believe
they have potential for
the future and could
represent as much as
25 percent of total
sales in a decade.
A few of these pro
grams are: 1) people
movers to unclog traffic
conditions in our cities; 2)
hydrofoils to move people and
freight over water faster; 3) a
100,000-acre test site where we’re growing

crops in a desert that has been stabilized with
garbage from a nearby city; 4) a pollution
control process that has application in de
salination and as a treatment of industrial
waste; and 5) aerospace programs that can
lead to a better understanding of how to
use this planet’s natural resources more
The point is—today Boeing is a lean,
ambitious, and very inventive company. A
place where new ideas flourish. Where an
attitude prevails that nothing we did before
is good enough for tomorrow. An organization
that’s rebuilding. Strong. Healthy. And de
voted to the development of new systems that
can keep planet Earth on course and the
people who live here healthy.
If this sounds like the kind of company
you can grow with, let’s get together. The
place to start is with your Placement Office.

Over Mustangs, 27-17
Battalion Sports Editor
Texas A&M’s offensive ma
chine found high gear Saturday
afternoon in Dallas in what began
as a rout and ended up as the
usual, heart-stopping Aggie foot
ball game of 1972.
After the first quarter, A&M
had amassed five first downs, 77
yards rushing, 34 passing and
had a 17-0 lead. A&M’s defensive
unit had given up a total of 19
yards total offense stopping the
famed M&M boys at will.
As that illustrious first quar
ter came to a close, it was ‘end
zone to end zone’ smiling Aggie
faces on a beautiful sun-lit aft
ernoon in the Cotton Bowl.
By the end of the third quar
ter, those Aggie faces turned as
cold as the north breeze as 36,109
fans watched the 17-0 lead dwin
dle to a 17-17 tie with 6:10 re
maining in the puzzling contest.
Was it to be another Texas
Tech, TCU or Baylor game? That
was the question in everyone’s
mind as the heartless SMU fans
kept screaming “Poor Aggies” as
the game drew to a tie.
A little less than four minutes
later it wasn’t “Poor Aggies” but
“$#%&? Aggies” being scream
ed from the SMU student sec
tion as little Pat McDermott boot
ed a 37-yard field goal with 2:12
remaining to put A&M ahead for
good 20-17.
The Aggies went 29 minutes
and 11 seconds between their fifth
and sixth first downs of the ball
game. The fifth came with 2:38
left in the first quarter and the
sixth came with 4:24 left in the
third quarter.
The Mustangs could not move
the ball on the first series from
their own 11-yard line and punted
the ball to A&M at the Aggie ,
45-yard line.
A&M moved for one first down
into Mustang territory but could
go no further than the 37 where
McDermott kicked a school rec
ord field goal of 54 yards to put
A&M ahead 3-0 with only four
minutes gone on the clock.
SMU got the hall back at its
own 10-yard line but again could
not move against the fired up
Aggie defense and punted to Carl
Roaches who returned the ball
to the Mustang 35.
Three plays later freshman
Skip Walker got the pitch from
quarterback Don Dean and scoot- |
ed 24 yards for the touchdown j
with tremendous clearing blocks
by fellow backfield members Brad
Dusek and Ronnie Hubby. Mc
Dermott kicked the extra point
and the Aggies led 10-0 with 6:58
remaining in the quarter.
A&M started its third scoring-
drive at its own 42-yard line. Aft
er a five yard motion penalty,
Dean hit Roaches for 29 yards to
the SMU 34. Seven plays later,
Walker again went around the
left side after snatching Dean’s
pitchout for the score from the
8-yard line with another fine
block by Dusek. McDermott’s kick
was good and A&M led 17-0 with
1:26 left in the quarter.
The first play of the second
quarter gave A&M another excel
lent opportunity to score with
freshman linebacker Ed Simonini
picking- off quarterback Keith
Bobo’s first pass at the A&M 49.
Two plays later Dean fumbled
the exchange from center and
SMU recovered at its own 49.
SMU got the ball hack again
after an exchange of punts and
Bobo hit freshman split end Ken
ny Harrison on a 43-yard bomb
in the end zone for the Mustangs
first score. Cornerhack Robert
Robert Murski had the speedster
covered like a blanket hut the
talented end swept the hall away
above last week’s SWC player of
the week. The kick was wide right
as A&M led 17-6 with 12:04 re
During that second quarter,
A&M had gained only 22 yards
total offense and had been pen
alized for 58.
Nothing at all happened in the
third quarter for either team as
both defenses played tough.
The fourth quarter’s excite
ment was enough for both as j
SMU concluded a 97-yard drive in
12 plays with Bobo carrying over
the final yard himself. The Mus
tangs went for two points with a
pass from Bobo to tight end Roan
making the score 17-14 with 13:36
left to play.
Seven minutes later, SMU
drove 48 yards in 12 plays as
Hackney kicked a 39-yard field
goal after the Aggie defense stif
fened. With 6:10 remaining, the
Mustangs tied the score. 17-17.
It was to be now or never
for the A&M offense. If they did
not score on the ensuing drive,
the chances of winning were slim.
A&M began the drive at its
own 15-yard line after
return of Hackney’s kickoffnj
6:04 to play.
A first down was achieved
the A&M 37 after a 15-yardt
by Hubby. Two plays later,A(
found itself with a third andeij
situation with 4:30 to go.
With absolutely no one eoi
ing, Dean hit Homer May in
right flat for 41 yards to
SMU 20. After three
plays from the 20, McDei
was called in to do his thing
37 yards out. With 2:12 lefi
hall sailed through for the
ning points, 20-17.
With 2:06 left, SMU hid
chance beginning a drive at
19 after the kickoff. Moi
hack to pass and defensive
Mike Bruton knocked the
lose, and linebacker Kent Fi
recovered for A&M at the
Three plays later Hubby
over from the two and Mf|
mott kicked the extra point
the 27-17 win.
